Reciprocity & Reconciliation

We at Herbal Cacao hold a profound reverence and wholeheartedly embrace Cacao, acknowledging its sacred and divine essence as a plant medicine, that was honoured and cherished by the indigenous Maya people both in ancient times and the present day.

We recognise that our work would not be possible without the traditions and knowledge passed down for thousands of years by the indigenous people who founded them.

The Maya elders envisioned a future where Cacao would once again fulfill its sacred role as a heart-opening drink, starting a new era of global connection. Their ancestral wisdom were suppressed for centuries, but today, they share their teachings with the world

Cacao holds a profound cosmic connection and here at Herbal Cacao, we are filled with gratitude and honour to work with this sacred medicine, upholding the wisdom passed down by the Maya. We proudly stand beside the dedicated smallholder Maya family farmers, deeply rooted in their heritage.

This commitment transcends words; it’s woven into our business’s very fabric. We nurture a symbiotic relationship where everyone involves thrives, creating a positive social and environmental impact. From the cultivation of Cacao beans to the creation of the final cup, we honour the ancient Maya traditions, fostering a sense of community, and enriching the world with the legacy of this sacred plant.

Supporting indigenous Maya tribes

The ancient Maya already know best that operating with a strong community foundation, is a strong sustainable way to protect their indigenous lifestyle and keep cacao yield high all year round.

To ensure we could do our part to give back straight to the hands it comes from, we are purchasing these special beans from the indigenous Maya families beyond Fair-Trade, thus paying them above market price for these special beans! By doing so, we honour their hard work and allow them to invest directly back into their community, so they can maintain their indigenous way of life. By establishing this type of pricing structure, allows us to pay on average about 2-3 times the fair-trade standard price per kilo. This way the money get’s filtered down back to the source.

Creating a positive social and environmental impact is not just a value; it’s our guiding principle.

Every year we personally visit the Maya familie farmers and donate part of our profits to a community in need of extra financial support to sustain their indigenous lifestyle
